It doesn’t matter what sport, the issue is there. There will always be gender comparison. This video shows some of the NBA and WNBA players doing the same moves. The video is not about gender. It is just about pure skills and skills only. Just the pure beauty of a great basketball move.
As we search for the Ultimate Athlete will it be the one who jumps higher, runs faster or will it be about the strength of a man versus woman. As we take you on a journey to search for the Ultimate Athlete will we find out that a woman might just be the Ultimate Athlete?
Will our 2010 Ultimate Athlete be a woman?
